If you have not been tested for food tolerance
/ intolerance, or you do not have inspiration and time and energy to try
rotation-elimination diet - by following the Blood Type Diet you can get very close to the lists of food
items that you tolerate.
The Blood Type Diet is based on the fact that people with
blood type (O, A, B, AB )
and the same race (Asian, Caucasian, African, Native
are very similar in the way how they tolerate different foods.

What's really a "Healthy Diet" ?
It is time to admit that
almost all diets explained in hundreds of diet books could actually be dangerous
for your health.
Because we humans are not all identical. I will
try to introduce you to the term "food tolerance".
people tolerate all foods!
Because each of us is one and only,
unrepeatable, different then anyone else, we can hardly learn about diet just by
reading the "old fashion" books listing foods: "this is good food",
"this is bad food".
What is Food Intolerance?
It is a sensitivity to elements/chemicals found in food. Unlike an allergy, an amount of the food identified may be able to be eaten without producing illness. The amount varies from person to person. During times of stress or hormonal change a person may become more sensitive/intolerant.
Intolerance to salicylate, amines, lactose and gluten (celiac disease) are examples of intolerances to natural elements/chemicals. Salicylate is found in most food that grows in or out of the ground. Amines are found in approximately 70% of the same foods as salicylate. They are also found in some meat, fish and cheeses. Gluten or gluten like substances are found mainly in wheat, barley, oats and rye. Lactose is found in milk and some other dairy products.
Intolerance to different lectins, surface protein is most common intolerance.
Most often, foods that we do not tolerate, we can not properly digest.
There are also many people who are intolerant of introduced chemicals/elements, such as
MSG, sulphites (a preservative used in many processed foods, including wine) and
other common food additives. MSG and salicylate are found naturally in some food. Extra amounts of MSG and salicylate are introduced into some foods and beauty products to enhance flavor, freshness or fragrance.
You must have read dozens of studies entitled
like: "This food prevents cancer", or "this food prevents cardiovascular
diseases", or "eat this food, it has a lot of
this-or-that nutrient, and that nutrient prevents Alzheimer or Parkinson's or
The problem with all those
studies is that all studies are based on statistics, averaging from a
large group of people.
Most science is based on statistics.
You are not a statistic,
you one and only,
You are unrepeatable!
If something is good for majority of people
as suggested ny some research,
there is still the possibility that that particular food is NOT good for you! Bare that in your mind!
Especially be suspicious on studies done on
people of other race, or other geographical region, or other age group, other
There is a high chance that food tolerance of that group of people is different then your
It may happened you tolerate this food. It may happened
If you tolerate it, it is good for you, if not
it is not good for you!
That is the point!
That is the wisdom!
The bottom point is: forget everything you
read and start from ZERO.
You can improve your food tolerance!

Question: What is the perfect diet for me considering my
health condition? can be shared in four different questions:
One of the most important question, and most complicated to
answer is the first question:
What foods should I eat / avoid eating?
What foods/How should I combine them with others ?
How should I prepare those foods (Raw / Juice/Cooking
How often / which quantities should I eat ?
It is not easy to answer all those questions without seeing experienced
dietary consultant few times a year!
The answer , certainly , can not be generalized. It must be individualized!
You may have already been suggested any of
those "restrictive" diets:
If someone, without
testing you, tells you: "This is a good diet for you", or "Good
diet for you is to eat "this and that" and avoid "this and that",
it is most likely that this advice is NOT complete !!!
Because all people are not identical.

So, how to know what to eat ?
How to know what is a healthy diet ?
Healthy diet is diet that excludes foods that you don't tolerate and that
includes foods that you tolerate and that are beneficial for you, while in the same time
you are eating large variety of food items, that will provide body with all the essential
nutrients and all the accessory nutrients...
To not tolerate some food or to be sensitive to some food does not automatically mean that you are allergic to that
It only mean that your body/mind/spirit will not give the peak performance
while eating this food. Signs of intolerance could be but are not limited to :
gas and bloating, abdominal pain, headache (immediately, or even many days after
eating that food ), constipation, diarrhea, sweating, fever, freezing,
nervousness, excessive anger, fear, sadness, pain in different parts of body,
reaction on the skin, reaction in the eyes, eye twitches, muscle twitches,
cramps, tremor, ...
Allergic reaction occurs in blood and in different organs, and is the worst and last
stadium of food intolerance.
You don't have to be allergic to any
particular food item, but you still may be intolerant of long list of food items.
How to find out what foods do I tolerate ?
- Blood Typing - Blood Type diet - Eat Right 4 Your Blood Type
- Food tolerance testing - muscle response testing - applied kinesiology
- Elimination - rotation diet
- Intuitive choosing of food items
- Combination of 1 - 4
If you have not been tested for food tolerance
/ intolerance, or you does not have inspiration and time and energy to try
rotation-elimination diet - you can get very close to the list of food
items that you tolerate.
Blood Type diet is based on the fact that people with same
blood type (O, A, B, AB ) and same race (Asian, Caucasian, African, Native
American, Australian) are very similar in the way how they tolerate different foods.
You can find food lists here:
Food Tolerance/Intolerance Testing -
Muscle Response Testing
Muscle response testing is the most reliable
way to determine what every individual person may or may not tolerate any particular
It is also called applied kinesiology, and most often tested muscles are muscles of the
You can be tested for different medications, different foods, and anything else.
You cant test yourself. Testing must be done by an experienced practitioner of
muscle response testing.
If person's muscle is weak when some food item or medication
is hold on the stomach, that means that person does not
tolerate that particular food or medication that moment.
If you repeat testing for many different foods many times, you can get very reliable lists of
foods that you tolerate.
Elimination - rotation diet
The elimination/rotation diet starts out with
one or two foods being allowed at any particular meal. For the first week, wheat and milk
are avoided because many people does not tolerate those foods. The easiest is to start
with foods that are listed to be beneficial for someone's blood type Any of your
favorite, commonly eaten foods are also avoided. If any food triggers a reaction, it
is replaced with another, until no symptoms are experienced. When all symptoms have
cleared, favorite foods are returned to the diet one-at-a-time. Foods that produce
symptoms twice are withdrawn for three months. If you are already receiving
cortisone therapy when they come for treatment, it is discontinued as soon as possible,
because the drug hides symptoms and makes it more difficult to pinpoint offending foods.
"Dr. G. Borok, a general practitioner in South Africa, has had considerable success
with intestinal problems using an elimination and rotation diet developed by Dr. Marshall
of Norwalk, Connecticut. In more than 5,000 patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),
99.9% have experienced relief of all bowel symptoms.
In cases of ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) (IBD), the response
rate is between 85% to 90%. Other symptoms, such as those affecting muscles, joints,
lungs, and kidneys, as well as emotional symptoms such as depression and anxiety, improve
in the 80% to 90% range." -- Based on information in: Townsend Letter for Doctors
& Patients, April 1998

THE ELIMINATION DIET from: ELIMINATION DIET
THE ELIMINATION DIET
I’ve often talked with folks that were confident that foods
didn’t have any impact on their symptoms. I ask if they’ve ever run a good
‘elimination’ diet and a surprising number assure me that they have. Upon
further questioning I always find that they have only eliminated a couple of
foods, say milk or wheat or nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers,
etc.). Even though milk and wheat are common food allergens and nightshade
vegetables create problems for those possessing one specific metabolism, this
should not be considered a true elimination diet.
Over 85% of people with chronic disease have food allergies.
Most will find not one, but a handful of foods acting as the major culprits.
This is the reason why eliminating just one or two random foods is all but
useless. If you were allergic to a large number of tree pollens, springtime
grasses and weeds, the removal of only one of these airborne allergens would
usually have little impact on your total allergy symptoms. If the allergen was
added back into the mix you probably wouldn’t notice. The effect from this one
allergen would be hidden or ‘masked’ by your already prominent symptoms to
the other allergens. The same phenomenon occurs with foods.
How could we find whether the airborne allergen in the above
example was a significant factor in triggering our allergic symptoms? The best
way would be to place ourselves in a room with perfectly filtered air (in
essence eliminating all airborne allergens) until our allergy symptoms abated.
The specific allergen would then be re-introduced and any allergic reaction
noted. In this way the impact of a single, specific allergen can be isolated and
tested. What was previously thought to be a rather insignificant allergen would
often deliver a surprisingly strong allergic response.
We can do the same thing with foods. Historically ‘spring
water fasts’ have been employed. Patients would drink only spring water for
the initial 4-5 days. This type of ‘fast’ would obviously eliminate all food
allergens from the diet. It was maintained for 4-5 days to also allow physical
elimination of all foods eaten prior to the start of the ‘fast’ from the
Spring water fasts have one major problem. A significant
percentage of individuals cannot tolerate them and should not try them. Their
metabolic demands make any kind of extended water fast dangerous. Fortunately
years of previous testing has provided a list of ‘safe’ foods that can be
temporarily substituted for your usual diet. These foods are not completely
hypo-allergenic but they do have a low allergenic potential. In other words they
are rarely found to induce a reaction. The foods include cod, trout, mackerel,
pears, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, yams, celery, zucchini,
carrots and peaches. Any foods routinely eaten more than twice a week should be
removed from the list. All the foods must be fresh and in their ‘whole’ or
natural form. No cans or other packaging allowed.
Spring water or sparkling water are the only acceptable
liquids. The only allowed condiment is sea or mineral salt. Steaming is an
excellent method of preparing foods during your elimination diet.
Prior to starting the diet you’ll need to purchase a bottle
of magnesium citrate (found in the laxative section) and alka-seltzer ‘gold’
(it’s found only in the gold colored box). All drugs should be continued.
Smoking should be ceased when initiating the diet. You will not be able to eat
at restaurants during the diet.
If you work, Thursday evening will be the best time to begin.
Wait two hours after dinner and pour one-half of the contents of the bottle of
magnesium citrate into a tall glass. Add an equal amount of water and some ice
and drink slowly. Repeat the same procedure with the remainder of the magnesium
citrate just prior to retiring.
Friday morning’s breakfast and all subsequent meals for the
next six days should consist exclusively of the ‘safe’ foods (cod, trout,
mackerel, pears, parsnips, turnips, rutabaga, sweet potatoes, yams, celery,
zucchini, carrots and peaches). You may eat them in any combination and in any
amount as often as you want throughout the first six days. Take note of what you
are eating and how often you are eating it. You won’t be able to remember so
keep a diary. You will need that information later.
By Friday evening (day 1) you should start feeling your first
‘withdrawal’ symptoms. You won’t be getting the temporary lift provided by
your allergenic food(s). Withdrawal symptoms can take many forms. The most
obvious is an increase in joint swelling and pain. Headache, muscle aches,
fatigue and other flu-like symptoms are very common. Strong hunger pangs and
cravings are usually present. It’s not unusual to still feel hungry shortly
after a meal.
Withdrawal symptoms will worsen on Saturday and Sunday (days 2
and 3). The intensity of these symptoms should not be underestimated. In fact
many will feel completely crippled during these days. Withdrawal symptoms can be
somewhat ameliorated by taking one tablet of alka-seltzer (in the gold box) in a
large glass of water. This can be repeated every 4 hours if needed. You should
try to drink plenty of water. It will help speed elimination and the
‘clearing’ of symptoms.
By Monday (day 4) some will feel significantly better as their
withdrawal symptoms begin to clear. This ‘clearing’ will continue on Tuesday
and Wednesday (days 5 and 6). While younger people tend to clear their symptoms
earlier, 85% of all arthritics will clear a large part of their arthritis
symptoms by day 6. After clearing most report that they feel better than they
have in years.
Now that symptoms have cleared new foods can be introduced,
one by one, to the base diet of ‘safe’ foods that you’ve been eating the
past 6 days. Up to 3 foods can be tested each day if there is no reaction.
NB : If fresh/frozen mackeral not available, can substitute
cod, or other white fish even. People who are pretty sure they are H-G can add
